FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Feb. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hyundai Motor America
and Minacs Marketing Solutions, a division of Aditya Birla Minacs, have
received a silver 2014 Stevie^® Award for Sales and Customer Service. These
awards recognize the achievements of call center, customer service, and sales
professionals worldwide. Hyundai and Minacs' Hyundai Hope On Wheels^® campaign
was honored in the Sales Achievement Category for the Outbound Marketing
Program of the Year, besting four other finalists for the silver medal.
Through Hyundai dealership service department participation in the campaign
and a donation match from Minacs, more than $60,000 was donated to the Hope On
Wheels Foundation last year.



The Hyundai Owner Marketing program was a unique integrated marketing and
fundraising campaign on behalf of Hyundai Motor America, Hyundai Hope On
Wheels, and participating Hyundai dealer service departments throughout the
U.S. This is the first time Hyundai Service Centers were directly involved in
supporting the Hope On Wheels foundation. Minacs designed a comprehensive
service marketing initiative targeting Hyundai owners to maintain their
vehicle at a Hyundai dealership while giving back to Hyundai Hope On Wheels.

The Hyundai Owner Marketing team developed and executed the communication
strategy through touch points that included direct mail, email, text messages,
digital display advertising, and social media. Donations were also collected
via point of purchase materials at dealership service departments.

"This award reaffirms Hyundai Motor America's commitment to Hope On Wheels and
our continued work with our dealers to drive awareness around pediatric cancer
research," said Dan Kulik, senior manager, owner connect marketing, Hyundai
Motor America. "This was the first time our sales and service departments
aligned to promote this great program and Hyundai dealership participation far
exceeded our expectations."
